The exterior and the interior are quite impressive, and my children definitely had a great time, the only downside to the museum is that it is decently expensive, although it is one of the best children's museums you will find. Each of the different sections to the museum have areas for different ages of children, so they can at least... More

I've been here several times and I love it more each time I go! There is so much to stimulate young minds without being overwhelming. I think the breakup of the rooms helps with that.

This is a hands on place for young children. So many things to do here that you could spend the day. I spent $80.00 for two adults and two toddlers. Food is available and plenty of space to sit if you bring food. Plenty of paid parking and accessibly by city bus.

We used to be members here, but don't live that close by and my kids are getting older...today the 14 year old wisely opted to do something else, and we found that the 10 year old could still play here all day, the 12 year old got bored a bit faster but was still happy to come back for nostalgic...

I took my little brother here and it was a great and fun time for him. He had a lot of fun and he is only 5 years old. I suggest The Please Touch Muesum for little kids.
